AS A VAPOR OF SMOKE THE REPUBLICAN REVOLUTION ENDS!

    In the 1994 election the Republican party won control of both houses of Congress. Their victory was hailed as the "Republican Revolution", and many looked forward to the changes the new representatives would bring. After almost two years, however, the novelty of the "revolution" has worn off as the reality of business as usual sinks into the American psyche.

    As was stated in an earlier article on The WINDS, the two party system in America gives the voter the illusion that he or she has a choice. If one candidate does not deliver, the voter may vote for the candidate of the other party. The truth of the matter is, both parties receive the bulk of their support from the same powerful constituents who wish to maintain the illusion of a "free" political process.

    Newt Gingrich was portrayed by the media as a bulwark of conservatism. It would be assumed that he would want to take America back to the values that made it a great nation. One would expect him to resist treaties that would compromise America's freedom and sovereignty. Not so. Newt Gingrich, along with Bob Dole, is a consummate internationalist who supports the agenda of the New World Order. This was evident as he lined up behind other Republicans and Democrats of his ilk in support of the GATT and NAFTA treaties.

    In 1994 Gingrich publicly endorsed a book entitled, CREATING A NEW CIVILIZATION: THE POLITICS OF THE THIRD WAVE. He also wrote the forward in the book. The book was written by futurists Alvin and Heidi Toffler, who wrote, "The Constitution of the U.S. needs to be altered....The system must die and be replaced....Nationalism is (obsolete)...as economies are transformed by the Third Wave, they are compelled to surrender part of their sovereignty." On March 1,1995, Gingrich spoke at the Nixon Center for Peace and Freedom and said that the third wave "will dissolve much of what we have thought of as the nation-state."

    Radio commentator Rush Limbaugh is another internationalist masquerading as a conservative. During the debate over GATT he rebuffed a group of respected authorities on the New World Order who requested that he use air time to discuss the treaty. GATT was certainly a treaty of monumental importance, as it involved the relinquishment of national sovereignty. If there was such a thing as a conservative in politics, this would certainly merit his attention and discussion.

    If one follows the news, he or she will hear daily reports of political bickering and fighting between the "liberals" and the "conservatives", or the two political parties. These sham fights have two purposes. The first is to create the illusion of alternate points of view in the political process (which there is not). The second is to create a sense of gridlock and frustration in the electorate so that they may be led to embrace the new political system (the third wave), and to relinquish current constitutional protections. In this, the two parties have served their true masters well.

    In Professor Quigley's TRAGEDY AND HOPE, he wrote concerning business interests that "they expected that they would be able to control both political parties equally. Indeed, some of them intended to contribute to both and allow an alternation of the two parties in public office in order to conceal their own influence, inhibit any exhibition of independence by politicians, and allow the electorate to believe that they were exercising their own free choice."

    The same is also related by Curtis Dall in FDR: MY EXPLOITED FATHER-IN-LAW where he says, "It appears to me that politics is the gentle art of having to pretend to be something that you know you are not, for vote-catching purposes, while being aided by our press....It is desirable for (candidates) to have great personal ambition and, perchance, to be vulnerable to blackmail...for some past occurrences; hence, someone not apt to become too independent in time."

    And finally, "Those finally chosen as the successor are sponsored by men powerful in the organization, by men who may have followed and supported their careers in the systems ever since they came into it....If (one) is going down, be assured, someone is greasing the skids; if he is going up, there are---with equal certainty---some who are helping to pull and to push him up." Warren Bennis in his book, AMERICAN BUREAUCRACY.

    When the Civil War broke out, President Lincoln snubbed the extortionate demands of New York bankers he had contacted for government financing. This experience seemed to form his vision for the future of the U.S. In a letter he wrote to William Elkin he said, "I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. As a result of the war, corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruptions in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the Republic is destroyed. I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in the midst of war."
